The Zen Life

Koji Sato


Published by Weatherhill/Tankosha, 1972, 7 x 6.8 inches

Dust jacket by Charlotte de Mezamat, ink on paper, approx. 22.2 inches long

The exhibition consists of a series of books curated by the artist, each of which has had its dust-jacket replaced by a unique work-on-paper. 

Mezamat describes these books as environments, locations she has spent time in. Motifs and impressions were drawn from the interiors of each book, focusing on recurring forms across the selection; threads, ropes and nets are brought to the surface.
